Drug crimes are very prevalent in California because the Legislature decided to pursue
these activities as crimes instead of medical conditions that require
serious intervention and addiction counseling.
If you have been arrested, the difference between rehab and a prison cell
could very well be the attorney that you choose to represent you. If you
hire a lawyer with a very large practice who you only see in court and
barely speak to, don't be surprised if you wind up in a cell. You
should be able to directly talk with your attorney whenever you have a
relevant question about your situation that needs to be answered. You
don't need to talk to a paralegal, a secretary, or the recent hire
fresh out of law school. You get to choose your counsel so choose someone
who is going to devote his full attentions to your case.
There are a lot of nuances when it comes to drug crimes. For example, in
a lot of places there is a certain amount of drugs you can possess before
the charge levied against you becomes a felony. A skilled lawyer will
hopefully be able to knock down a felony possession to a misdemeanor charge
if you have no priors and your possession wasn't completely egregious
like kilos or pounds. Users should not be in prison cells; they should
be in medical facilities getting the help that they so desperately need.
